Stumbled on this brew pub on my way thru A1A so I decided to stop. Clean place with a bar area, indoor and outdoor dining areas. Wait staff was ok, no complaints there. Food selection was ok, nothing special. They have six of their own beers on tap and also a selection of regular beers for those less adventurous. Five of the beers they brew are available year round and then one seasonal. Not a lot of info on the seasonals. Overall not a bad place to stop if your in the area, but don't go out of your way.

We had the worst experience here. I'm not sure if it was an isolated incident, but our waiter was extremely inept. Failed to actual bring us the beers we ordered. Instead the food was brought out some 20 minutes later by a different employee. The waiter never did mention the beers we ordered. Food was OK. The interior of the place is cool, with some partial walls housing fish tanks, and outdoor seating with views of the water and the Lion's Bridge. However, the service and extremely limited beer selection make this place a huge a PASS in my book. They had 4 beers on tap, no guest beers, and after asking questions about the beers I was never offered a sample. It did not have a brewery feel at all. I caught no glimpses of any brewing equipment, nor did the staff seem overly knowledgeable.

Slap in the middle of the touristy area of town, parking is difficult.
Seating is plentiful and a flight gets you all 7 of their brews on tap. The staff is quite helpful and friendly.
The seafood entree I ordered came with the worst hushpuppies I've ever had, dry, underseasoned, and overcooked. The amount of seafood was acceptable, at best, on top of a lot of fries. It filled my hollow belly but it wasn't really enjoyable.
The beer is solid if unimpressive, tailored to a middle-of-the-road crowd not the beer explorer. Overall, not a destination worth seeking out, for several reasons.

Great service, good atmosphere (busy since it is in the heart of St Augustine), beer was fair to good, food was quite good, only six of their own beers on tap.

a 2-level brewpub, with a smaller pub-like area downstairs and a larger, fancier section upstairs. 6 house beers on tap ranging from light lager to coffee brown to IPA. All were at least good (for style).
